Vegan Texas Caviar
Hello & Happy Friday!!
I know what you’re thinking, a bowl full of veggies, I just can’t get into it. Before you pass on this fab dish, I promise you, veggie enthusiasts or the furthest thing from it.. You’re going to love this recipe!! So just how good is this recipe?! Out of ver 500 concepts on EDS this is still one of my personal favorites for a myriad of reasons.
and I don’t even like black eyed peas lol
I had tried this concept back in circa 2009 at a local bar and although aesthetically all I could think was this is just a bunch of beans, I was instantly hooked. Fast forward to 2016, I had a craving for this dip and just dove right in to recreate it, but with more veggies, more flavor, and spice, and the EDS Texas Caviar was born!!
What I love about this recipe is just, ..everything! Its quick, easy, affordable, great for entertaining, bright, colorful, flavorful, could easily be made in bulk, and bottom line.. I could eat it during any season, any day of the week! Being comprised of a handful of ingredients, and 99% being veggies, requiring no baking, can be made with a quickness and tastes like liquid gold.. I know you’re going to be completely enamored with this effortless concept. It’s a must try!!
If you’re looking for a quick and easy snack alternative to the everyday chips and salsa.. you have to try my classic vegan Texas Caviar that’s packed to the max with every veggie under the sun!
